The Fountain of Youth is also winter home to at least four authors. "All the Days of My life", published in 2004, is an autobiography written by Robert L. McLaren. It is a testament to his faith and love of family and community. Fragrance and Thorns" written in 2006 by Rosella Beninga chronicles Rosie's first 80 years. Rosie donated a copy of her book to the library to commemorate her 30 happy years at the Fountain of Youth. "Divine Appointments" published in 2010 by Edna Adam-Simpson is Edna's moving biography on how God used one woman to affect many. "Damn, I Shot My Horse", published in 2015, is a coming of age story about Fred Hauptmann who recounts his adventures growing up in the desert. . Just a reminder that our FOY library is a lending library and not a book exchange. New posters outlining the library rules have been posted in the library. You may borrow up to 2 books per day, and must return them before you borrow any others. All books and DVD's must be returned to the library before you leave the park. Linda Craig
